A Females Take On A Male Type Brain.

So, if you are anything like me you will often sit and wonder what it is they are thinking about.

Is it me or maybe the girls?

Could it be the washing up or thinking about who’s bed is meant to be changed this week?

Is it what we are going to have for tea tomorrow?!

Is it the fart they just did?

Or maybe the computer game they are wishing they had?

Its more than likely to be none of those things OR a mixture of computers, boobs and farts. Because lets face it, the first few ideas are really very far fetched!

The fact that he is currently sat watching Charlie and Lola and giggling away says it all really.

Don’t get me wrong, my husband is one of the good ones, he is caring and all that jazz, but sometimes I just wonder what it is these men think about on a daily basis, as no matter how many times you tell them or ask them, they never remember.

I often find myself asking him the question “are you listening?” before I start talking now, I feel like some evil old bitch but if I don’t, he won’t bloody listen.

In the past I have often given him a job to, you know, keep his mind alive and all that only to receive a response and then 10 minutes later come back to find him still on twitter and the job still there for me to do?!

You could call him generous in that respect, but I simply don’t see it!

There are times when I find myself in a right pickle, do I remind him where we are going (in the car) only to be given a telling off because “HE KNOWS” where we are going, or do I wait for him to go the wrong way first?

Its a loose loose situation I tell you!

So I think for now, the mind of a man should stay a firm secret, as I feel it would give me nightmares to see the contents sprawled out everywhere like his many, many, many wires.


Thank you, My Saggy Boobs?!

Now I realise my Hubby has to be more helpful than most due to my disabilities, but sometimes there are times when I just wish he hadn’t.

Take for example today my husband asked me what I was wearing under my top yesterday? I kindly informed him it was a strapless bra. To which he replied ‘oh okay because your boobs looked saggy’ I mean what the hell?! He said it was a comment that was made with love and the kind of thing I would want to know? Well no it wasn’t, maybe it would have been if I had asked him? Or if I was still wearing said bra with said top? Not the next day! I have to say this was a completely useless comment I did not, in any way find useful!

Yes I know he loves me and he may of meant it in the nicest way but it was not received this way. I asked if my boobs are just, in-fact, saggy? He said of course not it was just yesterday, I told him even if they were, to be fair I have had two children and breastfed one. Of which I had retained products so my body kept on producing the damn milk even when I had stopped! So if they were in-fact saggy, they had damn good reason to be!

I do have to say if I feel something is too small for Hubby I will tell him he should probably throw away that top, I do it when he is wearing it not the next day after he had wore it all day, gheezsh!

Men do find the oddest ways to be un-useful whilst trying to be useful! Why not just tell me he didn’t like the bra?

Another way of being useful is telling his work colleagues that he is having time off to look after the girls whilst I go and have the leftover contents of my womb scrapped out because I was bleeding very heavily and its like a river. Yes because the term ‘personal reasons’ is just WAY too vague?! Lovely it was one of the more prouder moments of my life I have to say!

Needless to say we still love the men in our lives no matter how much they offend us! Yes we will just think of more vile ways to do it back! He might be amazing man, but I will still give as good as I get, well if you love them you just do 🙂
